Koes Plus The Third Album

LP Koes Plus The Third Album

LP Koes Plus The Third Album

To review and talk Koes Plus was over exposed. So let me talk such personal commentary only. I became familiar with Koes Plus firstly from his 8-th album or some, especially his song Kolam Susu (The Pool of Milk). And the first Koes Plus album I bought, was that album. In that time I never have his first until 7-th album. Luckily that last year I bought his second, third, sixth, nineth and tenth Koes Plus albums – all in LP formats.

In my first impression, Koes Plus is only such pop band with their simplicity in chord and harmony. The Indonesians called it “musik tiga jurus”. But after listening to album entitled Koes Plus Volume III (Dimita, April 1970), especially Kasih Sajang song, I realized that Koes Plus have their enough musical skill to compose such progressive pop. Song Kasih Sajang (Love and Empathy) was a composition based on accoustic guitar “juice” and little bit a beat progression. *

    lagu dan lirik KOes Bersaudara/Plus nggak kalah dan nggak ada matinye, semua rata-rata abadi dan sangat novelis deh. smoga Koes Plus trus berjayam terlebih banyak yg ngikutin jejaknya dan ngejaga lagunya sehingga banyak band muda yg mainin s/d sekarang.

    syair lagunya cenderung “kasih sayang” (mungkin pengaruh gereja). mulai dari pop jawa vol 1 barulah berfilsafat (kadang2 agak dalam juga) & agak ‘nakal’ (lebih berani menyindir – termasuk kepada dirinya sendiri)
